Update 2018-06-21 Hi Folks- Finally an update to the tool list tonight.. I appreciate your patience with me.. my day job has been extra-busy lately and I am spending every evening at the ball field coaching my daughters all-star softball team. That does not leave much time for tools, unfortunately. I am doing my best to keep the list up-to-date and add new items as time allows. Thanks for looking! I appreciate it.

Early Douglass Mfg Co. Adjustable Hollow Auger.
This auger is patented Aug 30, 1870. It was made in Seymour, CT. It's an early design that James Swan later improved on and sold once he acquired the Douglass Mfg. Co. It's a good, usable example with good blades and only light wear. An rare, early example.

Unusual Adjustable Hollow Auger.
This auger has no maker's mark I can see. I've checked every hollow bit patent in DATAMP and I can't find it. It's a unique design in my experience. It has a Stearns-like design with the arched frame and clamp-on depth stop. The depth stop is present- it cannot be removed. It's unusable in its present state, however, as it won't slide down the rail. It appears to be a manufacturing error, unless you can tell otherwise. The width of cut is controlled with on adjustment. The entire cutter assembly can also be adjusted to sit centered below the center of the shank. Most interestingly, there are two blades- the standard blade at the bottom mounted horizontally you expect to see and another mounted above it vertically. I imagine the vertical blade is used to clean-up after the main cutter since it's slicing across the long grain instead of end grain. It's missing some japanning and is generally dirty, but it works well and is very interesting. Please let me know if you've seen this design before.

Early, Excellent and Strange MOSELY & MUTTER Slipped 5/8in Quirk Ogee Molding Plane.
This plane was made in London by John Moseley and George Mutter. It was likely made at the end of the 18th century based on Goodman's book on British planemakers. The plane cuts a 5/8in square quirk ogee. It's slipped like a side bead which is very unusual. I've only ever seen slipped side beads before. The blade is near-new and has zero pitting. The boxing is dead on straight. The profile is very useful. The plane is in exceptional condition. The fact that it's slipped makes it fascinating but won't affect use. An outstanding plane overall

Gorgeous Ogee and Ovolo Double-Iron Molding Plane.
This plane was made by Curie in Glasgow. It cuts a 5/8in wide by 7/8in deep ogee and ovolo profile. It's a massive plane considering the size of the profile it cuts. It has an extra-long fence and wide depth stop which will make it easy to use. the blades are long and in good shape. The fact that there are two blades makes it much easier to maintain since the high-use area around the ovolo has its own blade. The wedges are replacements that fit well but clearly aren't original to the plane. A solid user with an unusual, gorgeous profiel

Applewood Single-Iron Sash Plane.
This is an early-looking, unmarked sash plane in the typical American pattern. The body is made of apple. The blade cuts both halves of a sash profile- a molded ovolo on the inside, a rabbet on the outside to hold the glass. It has the broad, flat chamfers, deep cove at the step, and gouge cuts at the transition points that tell me it's an early American plane, perhaps 18th century.

Superb, Early Cove and Astragal Molding Plane by I.COX.

Beautiful Double-Iron Door Plane.
This plane uses two irons to cut both a groove for a panel and a molded ovolo profile on the outside of the rails and stiles of a raised panel door. The plane is very well-done and appears to be made of cherry. The "boxed" groove is a contrasting wood.. perhaps rosewood or Lignum. It appears to be fairly early with broad, flat chamfers and rounded wedge finials much like a late 18th century American plane would have. The blades are in great shape- both were made by James Cam, an early British edge tool maker that seems to corroborate my estimate of the plane's age. The plane is in excellent condition overall. IT beautifully patinated to a deep red-gold color. It's also completely usable and a very rare profile.

The blade is clean and free of pitting. It's a very attractive plane in nice condition.

The threaded boxwood thumbscrews work well in securing the arms. The depth stop works perfectly. It comes with a single 5/8in wide blade. I can furnish a few others that will fit it and work well if you are interested. A fine example of a scarce plane by this early Boston maker

Auburn Quirk-Ogee-Bevel Molding Plane.
This is a medium sized example of this very common profile. It's 1 1/24in wide by 5/8in deep. The plane was owned by some ham-fisted galoot who opened up the breast with a gouge, probably to help it pass shavings. The blade also has some dings in the bevel that will require grinding. It'll never be a collectible, but it'll be usable once again with a little work.

Curvy Quirk Ogee and Bead Molding Plane by MELVILLE.

Scarce North Brothers 20-3 Spiral Screwdriver.
This screwdriver was made for manufacturing where there was only a need to drive screws. The spiral shaft only works one way. Just in case, there is a provision to remove screws using the ratchet mechanism if the slider is moved to the left, but it's not something the tool excels at. This is the largest of the three sizes North Brother offered. It's in excellent working order and comes with three bits..
